Peg Perego Book Pop-Up 3 Piece Stroller System

Last month, Peg Perego debuted their sassy new stroller, the Book Pop-Up.  Part of the Book collection of strollers, the it is aptly named because it folds inward, one-handed like a book and its pop-up open. Made in Italy, this 3 piece system includes the premium, aluminum chassis (stroller frame), folding bassinet and reversible seat but can also take the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio infant car seat (sold separately). The Book Pop-Up is the ideal stroller for daily use.

  • Stand alone stroller when folded
  • Bassinet  Pop-Up – can fold attached to the chassis, include removable & inclining mattress, approved for overnight sleeping, removable cover included (keeps baby protected from elements), use for babies up to 11 lbs
  • Seat Pop-Up can face in or out and also can fold attached to the stroller facing either direction, seat folds in so material remains clean when stroller is folded, hand wash seat fabrics
  • Large polyurethane wheels with ball bearings and suspension allow for 360 degree agility

The Peg Perego Book Pop-Up is a beauty to look at with its modern clean-lines and colors. Everything about the stroller is 1-handed from the push to the fold, so you can go about your needs with baby or things in your other hand. The stroll is easy and smooth. The fact that the bassinet can be used overnight, saves you the need to buy a separate bassinet for use in the house after baby is born. The protected seat when stroller is folded is something most people do not think about but when your stroller is in the trunk or the fabric is touching the wheels, it can get very dirty. As it is, children make messes, so the last thing you need is a mess made by outside sources. The seat fabric is removable, but its not easy so keeping the fabric as protected as possible is a huge plus. Also, no adapter is needed for the Primo Viaggio infant car seat, just pop it in. Finally, considering that the stroller folds with the seat, it is a fairly compact fold at 15.25″ x 33″. The Book Pop-Up is a fantastic stroller for any parent who can part with the money.
